Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and several others were killed today in a tragic helicopter crash outside LA. Plenty of more detailed reporting on this tragedy can be found elsewhere, such as the Los Angeles Times or SBNation’s Silver Screen and Roll.

Several Phillies and other Philly folks posted their thoughts on Twitter as well.

Bryant’s legacy may be a complicated one, but he was a hero to millions, certainly including his family.

Let’s all take today as a reminder to spend as much time as possible with the people who mean the most to us.
